Molecules

Two or more atoms bonded together make a molecule
They are held together by electrons from the individual atoms looking to pair with other electrons because electrons like to be in pairs. A example can be the water molecule has two hydrogen atoms looking for a electron to pair with so they found a oxygen atom and paired with one of the electrons from the oxygen atom making a bond 
It is important to learn about molecules because we are made by them and they help us understand the world in a fundamental way and also because molecules make up things such as our fuel as show above with the Ethanol molecule which is used as fuel in the modern day, another point is because they are all around us regardless of our profession or are a prime example is nitric acid show below as it is used for fertilizers but also a tiny bit for bombs showing that the same chemical is used by farmers and scientists. It is fundamental to about molecules as we interact with them every day.
